WORCESTER, MA — The Worcester Red Sox will present their first Polar Park Job Fair to recruit local potential part-time seasonal personnel, Saturday February 20, and Sunday, February 21, from noon to 4 p.m. each day. The virtual event will give prospective employees a snapshot of the various opportunities that the club will be offering in the coming months.
From Parking Attendants, Ushers, and Vendors to Ticket Sellers, Ticket Takers, and Merchandise Staff, to the Concessions Crew, Cleaning Crew, and Polar Park Ambassadors, this staff brings Worcester’s new ballpark to life.
A staff comprising more than 300 part-time members is needed to operate the ballpark during the season.
In addition to offering these fan-facing positions, the club will also be providing opportunities in facilities maintenance, videoboard and camera operations, and the actors who portray the club’s mascot. The Job Fair will provide more details about these areas of opportunity.
To participate, prospective staff members can visit woosox.com to provide information and to then receive registration information. The club will also welcome emails sent to [email protected] to answer those with particular questions.
“We have long looked forward to meeting the members of the Worcester community who would like to join the WooSox team,” said club President Dr. Charles A. Steinberg. “We seek a staff that reflects the best of Worcester. We are blessed to have arrived in a diverse, inclusive city whose multiculturalism bursts with civic pride. We hope to have a staff of which our city can be proud.”
“One of the many special things about the new Polar Park will be the familiar faces from Worcester working at the facility, creating their own memories, or building the foundation for a future career,” Worcester City Manager Edward M. Augustus Jr. said. “Providing job opportunities to many different people from in and around Worcester will add to the charm and appeal of the ballpark. This is particularly important as we emerge from a pandemic that has left many unemployed or in need of an extra income.”
“For many, these positions represent ‘Day One’ of their career in professional baseball,” Steinberg added. “Many of our full time staff have risen through this ‘farm system,’ whether by greeting fans, giving tours, or developing innovative content for the world to see. For others, it represents a second job, a summer job, or a working retirement. For all, your presence gives you a voice in our organization, and an opportunity to enhance the lives of so many in the City of Worcester, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and all of New England.”
